Mplayer:build on MinGW

How to build MPlayer on MinGW using the MSYS shell.


12th February 2007 - Mark Himsley
Last updated - 19-Dec-2007

This tutorial will build a static version of MPlayer with many formats included.
It is based on the tutorial at:
http://www1.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/win32/contrib/MPlayer-MinGW-Howto.txt


Install MinGW, MSYS and MSYS Developer Tool Kit


Download MinGW, MSYS and MSYS Developer Tool Kit to a temporary location

http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/MinGW-5.1.3.exe?download
http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/MSYS-1.0.10.exe?download
http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/msysDTK-1.0.1.exe?download

Linked from: http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml

Run MinGW-5.1.3.exe and install the current versions of:
MinGW base bools
g++
MinGW make
into C:\MinGW

Run MSYS-1.0.10.exe and install into C:\msys\1.0.

After the install finishes a cmd shell opens and asks:
"Do you wish to continue with the post install? [yn ]"

press y and return

The next question is:
"Do you have MinGW installed? [yn ]"

press y and return and enter the path MinGW was installed into:
c:/MinGW (NOTE the forward slash)

The next question is:
Do you wish for me to add mount bindings for c:/MinGW to /mingw? [yn ]

press y and return

Run msysDTK-1.0.1.exe and install into C:\msys\1.0

After installing MinGW, MSYS and MSYS Developer Tool Kit, open a msys shell from
the short-cut on your desktop.


Install SVN client tools


Download binary client tools.

http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/32473/svn-win32-1.3.2.zip

Linked from: http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html#binary-packages

Use 7-Zip or another zip archive managed to unpack the contents and put them
into your path, for instance C:\mingw\bin


Patch MinGW for long file pointers


Download w32api-3.6.tar.gz and mingw-runtime-3.11 source into your msys home
directory.

http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/w32api-3.6.tar.gz?download
http://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/mingw-runtime-3.11-20061202-1-src.tar.gz?download

Linked from: http://www.mingw.org/download.shtml

and also download a patch file

http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer/misc/file64_mingw.diff

In your msys home directory create a new directory called w32api and extract
w32api-3.6.tar.gz into it.

$ cd
$ mkdir w32api
$ tar -zxf w32api-3.6.tar.gz -C w32api


Extract the mingw-runtime archive, patch it, build it and install it

$ cd
$ tar -zxf mingw-runtime-3.11-20061202-1-src.tar.gz
$ cd mingw-runtime-3.11
$ patch -p1 -u -i../file64_mingw.diff

!!Install DirectX headers!!

Download the DirectX headers to your msys home directory.

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/win32-beta/contrib/dx7headers.tgz

$ tar -zxf dx7headers.tgz -C dx7headers
$ cd dx7headers
$ cp -a *.h c:/mingw/include}}}


!!Install ogg, vorbis and theora libraries!!

MPlayer can already play vorbis audio but requires libthora to play thora video.
Building libtheora requires libogg and libvorbis to be installed.

Download the latest version of ogg, vorbis and therora to your msys home directory

http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/ogg/libogg-1.1.3.tar.gz
http://downloads.xiph.org/releases/vorbis/libvorbis-1.1.2.tar.gz

$ ./configure
prefix=c:/mingw disable-shared
$ make
$ make install}}}

Extract the libvorbis archive, build it and install it.

{{{$ cd
$ tar -zxf libvorbis-1.1.2.tar.gz
$ cd libvorbis-1.1.2
$ ./configure

$ ./configure prefix=c:/mingw
$ make
$ mkdir c:/mingw/man/man1
$ make install}}}

Install lame from http://lame.sourceforge.net/download/download.html

{{{$ cd
$ tar -zxf lame-3.97.tar.gz
$ cd lame-3.97
$ ./configure
prefix=c:/mingw disable-shared disable-decoder
$ make
$ make install



Now get http://www.xvid.org/downloads.html

$ tar -zxf xvidcore-1.1.2.tar.gz
$ cd xvidcore-1.1.2/build/generic
$ ./configure prefix=c:/mingw disable-shared
$ make
$ make install
$ mv c:/mingw/lib/xvidcore.a c:/mingw/lib/libxvidcore.a


Install x264

$ cd
$ svn co svn://svn.videolan.org/x264/trunk x264
$ cd x264
$ ./configure prefix=c:/mingw enable-avis-input enable-pthread
$ make
$ make install}}}


!!live.com rtsp streaming support!!

Get the sources
http://www.live.com/liveMedia/public/

{{{$ cd
$ tar -zxf live.2007.04.24a.tar.gz (got some errors from tar here but the build worked nevertheless)
$ cd live
$ genMakefiles mingw
$ make}}}


!!Install MPlayer!!

{{{$ cd
$ svn checkout svn://svn.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer/trunk mplayer
$ cd mplayer}}}

OR
{{{$ cd mplayer
$ svn update
$ make distclean}}}

{{{$ ./configure \
enable-runtime-cpudetection \
codecsdir=codecs \
enable-menu \
enable-static \
with-extralibdir=/home/mdsh/live \
with-extraincdir=/home/mdsh/live
$ make clean && make}}}

If you are going to use this version on MPlayer only on the computer on which you
are building MPlayer then you can leave out
enable-runtime-cpudetection option.

Currently there is an issue in stream/stream_dvd.c


Because of this issue I patched the source to make it compile.
